Major Advisement and Resources

Major Advisement and Resources

Welcome to John Jay's new major resource pages, which will answer many of your questions, whether you are still in the process of choosing your major or have already declared it. Consider these pages a kind of one-stop shop for the information you most need to know about your major. What you find here will include:
  • Major requirements
  • How to meet with a major advisor
  • Advice about course planning
  • Tools to track your progress in the major
  • Career and graduate school tips and resources
We are still in the process of creating pages for all the majors.  If your major in the list below does not yet link to a major resource page, check back soon! We will be adding more pages throughout the Spring 2017 semester.
